We are off to Newfoundland so tag-along with us.

Ode to Newfoundland

When the sun rays crown thy pine clad hills,
And summer spreads her hand,
When silvern voices tune thy rills,
We love thee smiling land,
We love thee, we love thee
We love thee smiling land.

When spreads thy cloak of shimm'ring white,
At winters stern command,
Thro' shortened day and starlit night,
We love thee frozen land,
We love thee, we love thee,
We love thee frozen land.

When blinding storm gusts fret thy shore,
And wild waves lash thy strand,
Thro' sprindrift swirl and tempest roar,
We love thee windsept land,
We love thee, we love thee,
We love thee windswept land.

As loved our fathers, so we love,
Where once they stood we stand,
Their prayer we raise to heav'n above,
God guards thee, Newfoundland,
God guard thee, God guard thee,
God guard thee Newfoundland.

The national anthem of Newfoundland, written by Sir Cavendish Boyle while he was Britain's Govenor of Newfoundland between 1901 and 1904.

Every Newfoundlander stands tall, and proudly sings this song about their Newfoundland.

Don't Be a Stranger!
